The Los Helechos Hotel is a 70ies, somehow East German style hotel in a beautiful mountainous surrounding which lowers the somewhat cold feeling the architecture breathes. However, the rooms are quiet and vary spacious. As in many other places (warm) water is only available during certain hours (from 7am in the morning).
The garden and the surrounding mountains are beautiful. In March the weather is cooler then in Trinidad (you need a sweater in the morning and evening) which can be very pleasant and could be an alternative to a noisy Trinidad hotel.
The food is ok (buffet) according to Cuban standards, service staff not super friendly but attentive and fast. Understandable as the hotel is a place for many groups and not particularly for individual travelers.
